Q: How to fix gear shifter

asked by on

can not see the gear shifter at the dashboard
My car has an automatic transmission.

In many cases, this problem can be caused by a loose connection behind the instrument cluster. First, the fuses for the gear and information center displays must be checked. If the fuse did blow, there is a faulty component along the circuit. If the fuse is not blown and the information center works while the gear readout does not, a malfunction of the instrument cluster assembly is possible. Consider hiring one of our mobile experts to inspect the circuits and pinpoint the electrical failure firsthand.
